I would like to say thank you to Iris Johnson my mother who was very interested in genealogy, and became active in the initial stages after reading an article in the Evening Sentinel in 1986 about how to trace your family in Staffordshire. She wrote letters and enjoyed meeting new relatives. Also strong contributors were my Aunt Elaine Wood who used to drive me around to Latter Day Saiunts family history centre, churches and church yards. Arthur Wood, George Bowyer, Charlotte Bould, Harold Owen, Norah Proctor, Mary Cartlidge, Brian Endicott Morgan, Bruce Shaak, Doreen Heath, Mary Turner, Gladys Winifred Oliver, Mary Breeze, Dennis Heath, and Peter Clive Jackson, now all deceased; and also to the many other relatives, whom have contributed, since 1986.
I have gone to every effort to check accuracy on all entries on this site. Please contact me if you have any doubts about odd items.
